A Johnny’s post?!

So, I’m not much of a Johnny’s fan, as if that weren’t obvious by the lack of Johnny’s music coverage. But that doesn’t mean I don’t know about them or that I’ve never listened to them.

On a slightly different note, some of you might know that a certain someone was recently at USC for a movie premiere… (ok fine, it was Matsujun of Arashi, but you already knew that, didn’t you?) And I’m lucky that it was easy enough access to get to his event and see Matsujun in person! And take pictures! And so I’m not supposed to take pictures, but I took ’em anyway and still got to keep them. And let me tell you, it was lucky, because I saw people coming and put my camera away and they didn’t notice me, but they did make other people delete their pictures! (delete!)

Yukan Club is a Japanese drama that aired the fall of 2007. It was broadcasted by NTV on Tuesday nights. Fairly popular, it got average ratings of 12.6%. Its theme song was Keep the Faith by KAT-TUN.

Basically the story is about six rich kids who are always bored, which sounds kind of stupid (not that it is particularly intelligent) but leaving it at that wouldn’t be giving it the credit it deserves. The six main characters all have well known parents and each have their own strength. Shochikubai Miroku is the son of the police commissioner. He likes autos and martial arts and has some serious connections. Hakushika Noriko is the daughter of a famous painter, and her mother comes from the traditional tea ceremony world. She’s an extremely well-bred rich girl but really hates men. Kikumasamune Seishiro is the son of a well known hospital’s owner. He’s very intelligent and is also a martial arts expert. Kizakura Karen’s mother is a jewel dealer; she hopes to marry into riches. Bido Granmarie is the son of the Swedish ambassador and is a huge playboy. Kenbishi Yuri is the daughter of the world renowned President of Kenbishi Corp.; she’s hugely energetic and loves food more than anything in the world.
